Abstract : The paper describes a High Resolution Temperature Sonde (HRTS), developed by the Atmospheric Sciences Laboratory (ASL), and compares lower atmospheric temperature profiles measured by the HRTS to the same profiles measured by the standard radiosonde. Data from solid-state, light-weight HRTS's flown on jimsphere balloons and tracked by a T-9 radar to provide altitude information, are discussed. Instrumentation associated with and calibration related to the HRTS are described. (Modified author abstract)
